Brought out my gallon tupperware for Albatross' hosptial tank, added some BWE and salt to it.

I also did a 50% WC for the new boy's 1 gallon tank and gave him a bit of BWE as well.

Now I'm waiting for the heater in Albatross' hospital tank to adjust so I can put him in, clean the 5 gallon he's in, and put in another betta.

Hope he mends, though. He's not looking good at this point.

Sorry to hear about Albatross, Jupiter. :( I hope he gets better.

Today I bought some blue coffee mugs and put them in Caligula and Gyger's divided tank. I also switched out a small plant Stahl had, gave him a bigger one, and gave the little one to Caligula.

I did heaps of betta things today. Firstly, I picked up eight 3 gallon tanks I had on ordered from the LFS. I also bought a new heater and planted the crypts that got delivered while I was at work, and did my usual daily water changes. However, probably the most exciting thing was buying a new halfmoon from the same LFS that I ordered my tank from.

I'd been wanting him for about a month or so and he was always sitting there on the shelf when I went. Then one day he disappeared from the main shelf and I thought he had gotten sold until he popped up in the 'damaged fin section'. I got $10.00 off him and he's currently living on my bedside table until I get my big shelving unit.

I did 50% water changes on my 5 gallon betta tanks. I also added a handful of ceramic rings to Wraith's filter and a little milk pitcher for him to hide in/check out. So far he won't go into it but he's eyeballing every inch of the pattern. I'm making IAL extract too. Tomorrow is everyone else's water changes!

5 Gallon: Male Marble HM-Logan
5 Gallon: Dwarf Puffer-Huey

Congrats on your new betta! I did 50% water changes on my CT 1 gallon flitered tank and my HM 1.5 gallon filtered/heated tank. I gave them both new tank ornaments, and took out my CT's plant. I put some betta bulbs in my VT's 1.2 gallon vase, hope they grow! And I taught my HM how to play follow the finger. He looooooves that game! He's very good at it. Hehe. Aah, a good betta day.

Thanks.

Did another small WC for my boy's tank today. Did a huge water change in the 5 gallon, redecorated it, and am currently floating my new girl in there.

I can't stop watching Cass (finally) flare... he's so cute. Goes racing around the tank, hides behind his vase, comes back to the mirror and does the same thing all over again.

Did a waterchange or two, made sure everyone was happy.


In the hobby for 9 years.

I just brought home my 9th Betta, Darcia. I also got Mandala a new cave (a blue mug), and fixed Cannibal Johnson's filter.
